I won't pretend that I wasn't nervous for much of this game. I felt our offense never really got into any kind of a good rhythm and the Giants defense came prepared and harassed Russell all day long. I would have hoped to see our offense light up the scoreboard and not have to continuously settle for field goals instead of touchdowns, but all-in-all, this team just continues to do what it has to do to win.
Credit to the Giants defense who played our offense and Russell tough. They had a lot of pride and it showed. In the end it was our defense that simply proved to be absolutely stellar. 5 interceptions and they only crossed into our side of the field ONCE in the entire game. Incredible. Incredible.
We will clinch (oh yes we will) our division and HFA next Sunday at home against the Cardinals. The 49ers are getting hot at the right time but the race for the division ends next Sunday. I PRAY we face them at home in the playoffs. While I respect that they are one of the better teams in the NFL with everyone healthy, I want to show the world that the reign for the 49ers is over, and it will come at our hands, in our home.
The magical season continues and I am almost certain it ends with Russell Wilson hoisting the Lombardi in February.
